Electronic or Smart Locks

If you’ve accidentally locked yourself out of your house more than once, or if you tend to lose your keys, consider upgrading to an electronic lock. Remembering a four or six-digit combination and keeping it a secret is all you need to keep your home secure. A smart lock is a type of electronic lock that’s integrated into a smart home system and can be controlled by an app. This lets you unlock your home remotely, which is ideal for situations where you have incoming deliveries, when your kids get home early, or when you just forgot to lock your home while away.

Gutter Protection Systems

Gutter protection systems like Gutter Helmet® prevent leaves, twigs, and other solid objects from getting into the gutters. It eliminates the need to periodically clean your gutters, which means no more climbing the roof edge and placing yourself at risk of injury. In fact, when combined with seamless gutters, you can virtually forget about climbing the roof for gutter-related reasons.

Grab Bars In The Bathroom

If you think you’ve found your forever home, you should look into improvements that will help you along as you get into your senior years. One of these is installing grab bars in the bathroom. They’re inexpensive and can be installed in a day. The bars come in configurations and sizes that will fit existing bathroom layouts. As an added bonus, having these upgrades in your bathroom can have a positive effect on your home’s resale value.

Smoke Detectors

Every home needs to have at least one smoke detector on every floor. They generally don’t require much maintenance other than checking their batteries twice a year, yet the level of safety that they can add to your home is invaluable.
